If you could save just a little bit more you could get an i3 2120 and get some more performance out of your machine.

It's a difference of 40 bucks or so.

a gamer doesnt need 8 gig of RAM

use a 2 x 2 gig kit instead
and spend any money you save on upgrading processor or graphics

with that graphics card you will be fine with a 400 watt psu

4 gig of RAM is more than enough for almost every gamer build .

A game is a 32 bit program and cant ever use more than about 3.3 gig of RAM , at most, for the same reason a 32 bit operating system cant .
Windows installs typically use 7-800 MB meaning that there is enough left over for the game .

You can check this yourself. Run your game in a window . Have Task manager open in another window and you can see immediately how much RAM is actually being used .

i meant its faster cpu wise, oh course the 550ti is faster, but its smarter to get better cpu than upgrade videocard imo.
